Rather Boring and Hollow
15 January 2004 | by CommieTTSee all my reviews

I didn't know anything about the film before seeing it. I just saw it on the shelf at my local library and the cover made me think it might be a fun flick, a la "Romancing the Stone." Well, it wasn't.

There is plenty of potential for fun, adventure and intrigue (as the cover promises) with Garner, Kennedy and Renzi - who's quite easy on the eyes. But the story (which the plot summary does a fine - albeit no frills - job of covering) and acting is so lackluster, it never gets off the ground. Poorly timed jokes delivered with about as much enthusiasm as someone reading a dictionary; action that is very stilted and uninspired; and intrigue? - it was tacked on to the last 30 seconds of the film.

Besides the fact that less than a few minutes of this takes place in what anyone could consider a "jungle" (after viewing the movie, I found out the title actually refers to a color of lipstick, but the picture on the cover makes it look like it might take place in a jungle setting). The bulk of the movie actually takes place in the desert. In theory, there's nothing wrong with that - but that's not what I was expecting from the title and the cover.

Rather disappointing, overall.

My rating: 5
